- What about your blessed scientists?
- The Scientists? Well look at what they’ve done to them.
AU where Scott is stuck in a time loop that starts about a week before the murders and ends either when he dies or at specific date in the future. Every time he tries to stop the kids from being killed, whether that be stopping Vincent or some other way. Maybe it works, maybe not, but if if not then he is forced to go through the entire plot again and again, watching people die around him. Bonus if the other AUs are variants to his base loops, so he doesn't really know what's the truth anymore.
